Experience the history of early San Diego here! Historic buildings include museums, unique retail shops, and restaurants. We love getting freshly-made tortillas filled with butter or fresh salsa from Cafe Coyote. The woman who makes the tortillas has been doing this for decades! Our favorite restaurant in Old Town is the Cosmopolitan, which is in a historic hotel building with authentic old west decor and furniture. The food is always very good here! About 40 minutes away by car.

There are several spots around Mission Bay to hang out! What we like about the bay is that there are no waves to contend with, and there are fire pits for night time bonfires. We usually like to go to the public parking areas for either Bahia Resort or Paradise Point Hotel. Do some research and rent standup paddle boards or kayaks to add more adventure to your outing! About 35 minutes away.
